Beddy Visits… Whitby

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Today I’m delivering to the historic town of Whitby. The town is famous for being the birth place for the horror story Dracula. The story was written by the famous author Bram Stoker who holidayed in the fishing town, and took inspiration from the dramatic scenery around him.

The great explorer Captain James Cook began his seaman training in Whitby. Cook began the life of a sailor on the Freelove in February 1747, carrying a cargo of coal from Whitby to London. He went on to be one of the most famous early explorers travelling all over the world. There is a museum dedicated to Cook in Whitby, which I visited to learn about his adventures.
